A tax vacation is a short-term tax reduction. Tax holidays frequently suspend the state and municipal sales taxes that Americans have to pay. Governments may also utilize tax holidays as investment inducements to, for instance, exempt a new facility from paying property taxes for a period of time. A tax holiday is a governmental incentive that lowers or completely removes taxes for individuals, corporations, or both.

A tax holiday’s main goal is to boost the economy and promote growth. Businesses may also be given tax holidays as a financial incentive. The question of whether tax holidays are worthwhile is still up for debate. In response to political resistance, some states that recently granted sales tax holidays now don’t.

The government may grant a tax holiday—a brief time during which some taxes are suspended or reduced—in order to promote consumer spending or company investment.

As in the case of the gas tax holidays implemented by some states and supported by President Joseph Biden in 2022 in reaction to substantially rising gas prices at the pump, tax holidays may also aim to counteract the effects of market-based price hikes. Some tax holidays have developed into yearly customs. To help parents save money on school supplies, some state and local governments in the United States offer a sales tax holiday the weekend before classes return in the fall.

The objective is to promote store traffic, which may raise total expenditure. States that announce tax holidays might also expect to attract customers from other states that are close by.

According to research, households increase their purchases of clothing and shoes by more than 49% and 45%, respectively, during sales tax holidays.
